We consider stimulated Raman scattering, given the pump fields and the first Stokes component of different spatial configuration (parallel beams, crossed beams, axial and spherically symmetrical field of the first Stokes component). It is shown that, depending on the experimental conditions, there can be realized either emission of the Townsend type, or two other types of emission whose intensity is unstable to changes of the geometric parameters and can have a complicated diffraction substructure. A comparative analysis is made of the various types of radiation. The theoretical results are compared with the available experimental data.
